All Time Low In Manila Will be Forever in Hustler's Hearts


All Time Low's recent Manila show at the Smart Araneta Coliseum last May 3 2024 wasn't just a concert; it was a nostalgic reunion with the pop-punk band that caught our hearts back in the late 2000s. 

Filipino Hustlers really missed Alex, Jack, Rian and Zack. Gone are the days of throwing bras onstage and wild mosh pits, replaced by a crowd of still screaming and jumping millennial fans who've grown up alongside the band's music. The show started with "Weightless" and "Lost in Stereo" from their album "Nothing Personal" back in 2009.

Returning to the Smart Araneta Coliseum, the very stage they graced years ago, All Time Low delivered a powerful performance that will be forever in our hearts-celebrating 20 years of music. 

This time, it was a tribute to the band's enduring legacy. They belted out hit after hit, proving that even though the years have passed, All Time Low is still ALL TIME LOW we have known may you have known them from 20 years or 10 years ago.

All Time Low played more than 20 songs and Alex teased us that all over the world they played most songs in Manila because our energy is unbelievable. 

A special highlight was Alex Gaskarth surprising everyone with starting the show with him sitting and playing the piano while singing and adding a new layer of depth to their performance. And hearing "Jasey Rae" live and "Remembering Sunday", he said "Guys you know this! and he let the crowd sing the bridge of the song: "I'm not coming back I did something so terrible..." we were emotional, hearing this especially in 2024, brought back pure nostalgia, reminding us why this song will forever be epic.

Of course, the band played 1-2 songs from all of their albums especially their new songs as well from their "Tell Me I'm Alive" album 2023 like "Modern Love" "Sleep Walking" and their collab with Avril Lavigne "Fake as Hell."

Remember the wild, heartthrob Jack Barakat of the early days? Now he said, "I'm tired, I can't feel my legs, I can't breathe, I'm scared!" With concern, the crowd laughed because we all know how it feels since we are getting older too, we are now Millenials. But fear not, he and the rest of the band powered through, giving the Manila crowd a night they'll never forget.

The night, of course, couldn't end without their all-time classic, "Dear Maria, Count Me In." As the final notes faded, a sense of unity filled the arena. It wasn't just a concert; it was a celebration of a band and its fans, proving that even as we grow up, the music that resonated with us in our youth continues to hold a special place in our hearts.
